Date night with a difference
Moments spent just the two of you needn’t be so few and far between
In 2019, make it your mission to spend just a little more time as a couple; visit somewhere new, try something from the menu you ordinarily wouldn’t, switch off your phone… It’s all too often you find yourself thinking about heading somewhere, yet, never get round to it. We’re keen to help you break the mould and do something extra lovely that you might remember for years to come. So whether a meticulously planned mini-break or spur of the moment getaway, we’re quite sure you’ll have a ball. Below are a few of our very favourite things to do – together – whilst you’re here:
Relax in your room
When you check-in to your room it’s rather like checking-out of the outside world. Sleep a little longer, take a long bath instead of a shower. Treat the hydro like your own little oasis and make the most of some time away…our world is your oyster! And if you’re eager for a little added luxury, opt for one of our executive double rooms. They really are looking rather snazzy after a bit of refurbishment. See for yourself!
Hit the pool
We completely understand if the physical swimming element sounds like rather a lot of work for someone who’s on holiday. So instead, you can simply sit amongst the bubbles in the jacuzzi or toast in the heat of the sauna and steam room.
Slip away to the spa
For those in search of true relaxation…it’s got to be a massage in our very own spa. Dreaming of smoother, healthier skin? Your prayers will be answered with a facial. Tired, aching feet? We got that covered too. Or simply want your nails done for dinner…too easy! We are one of Scotland’s first spa hotels after all…
Bask in the afternoon sunshine, look out the window and work your way through our muckle afternoon tea board. Don’t fret, it’s still a gloriously pretty sight to behold (and makes an epic Instagram if you’re phone happens to have sneaked back on) but it’s a big eat and chef certainly doesn’t go half on the cakes! Doggy bag for in the room later?
If there’s one thing for sure, you won’t be going hungry whilst you’re here! For a quick snack or a posh packed lunch, our picnic shop is just the ticket. Casual bar lunches and dinners can be had in our ‘Not the Cocktail Bar‘ and long lazy meals in our ‘main’ restaurant are recommended for the lovers of hearty 3-course menus.
Calling all you sporty lot! I’m sure you already know that we’re only 10 minutes from Glentress. And if you didn’t, what a happy surprise! We’ve got plenty of bikes for hire and if you’re organised enough to have brought your own you’re welcome to use our bike wash and secure store. Fancy a less fast and much less furious bike ride? Why not tootle across for a coffee at the Peel Cafe, Glentress. The scenery is worth the exertion. Honest!
Archery. Air rifles. Segways. We’re lucky to have the space to run all of these glorious things. Pick which one you’d like to try and head to reception to book. OR, if you’re feeling extra adventurous you could try them all. Loser picks up the drinks bill later!
After dinner, time is best spent at the Gin Palace in the lounge. You might be lucky enough to join us for one of the planned tasting evenings and if not, we’ll happily guide you through a few of the options before you make that all important choice.
